Dear reader, I have been looking forward to this day for so many months, ever since the idea walked into my mind of writing a love story set in the Greek islands…
… At last, my new novel Aphrodite’s Tears is published!
Here is a glimpse of what you can expect in Aphrodite’s Tears:
In ancient Greece, one of the twelve labours of Heracles was to bring back a golden apple from the Garden of Hesperides. To archaeologist Oriel Anderson, joining a team of Greek divers on the island of Helios seems like the golden apple of her dreams.
Yet the dream becomes a nightmare when she meets the devilish owner of the island, Damian Lekkas. In shocked recognition, she is flooded with the memory of a romantic night in a stranger’s arms, six summers ago. A very different man stands before her now, and Oriel senses that the sardonic Greek autocrat is hell-bent on playing a cat and mouse game with her.
As they cross swords and passions mount, Oriel is aware that malevolent eyes watch her from the shadows. Dark rumours are whispered about the Lekkas family. What dangers lie in Helios, a bewitching land where ancient rituals are still enacted to appease the gods, young men risk their lives in the treacherous depths of the Ionian Sea, and the volatile earth can erupt at any moment?
Will Oriel find the hidden treasures she seeks? Or will Damian’s tragic past catch up with them, threatening to engulf them both?
The novel is available in all formats in the UK, and in ebook format internationally (the paperback launch in the US will follow in April).
To celebrate this book release, I am giving away a really beautiful silk scarf from the Sirens Collection by Emma Shipley (https://emmajshipley.com/), which is inspired by Ancient Greek mythology.
Entry is via Rafflecopter, below, and is open to all (I will post internationally). Good luck!
